I am 32 and looking for a relaxing vacation destination in the U.S.  I googled vacations for single guys, but everything revolves around partying and getting laid.  That sounds nice, but I'm just looking to relax and get away from work.  I will be going by myself.

A ski resort in summer -- hiking.

A campground or cabins -- same deal.

A relatively remote beach area.

That sounds like what you'd like.

Utah. Maybe it's just me, but I absolutely love the Salt Lake Valley. For a very simple hike, go up to Cecret Lake (can't remember if it's in Big or Little Cottonwood Canyon--big I think?), and if you can admire architecture without being bothered by the LDS-centricity, take a stroll through Temple Square. Also check out the church visitor's center's garden rooftop, and for an even shorter hike, but beautiful view of the whole valley, go to Ensign Peak. Great place to shout out your manliness at the top of your lungs. The place soothes my soul.
The Texas Hill Country, west of Austin, Northwest of San Antonio.  Hundreds of little towns, restaurants, bars, wineries, breweries, local museums, graveyards, ghost towns and cold rivers to float an inner tube down.  It's just a local call to Heaven, down there.  And every car you meet on the two lane highway will wave "hello".  After all, out in Luckenbach, Texas, ain't nobody feelin' no pain.
That sounds fun.  As much as it pains me to say this, Austin is nice place.  I'm an Oklahoma grad.  I might take a couple weeks off work, pack a bag and just take off.  I've worked so much that doing even the easiest thing takes all I have.  I just don't give a shit anymore and that's not like me.
Yeah, Austin is a nice place, but it's gotten crowded since Dell moved down there.  I'm a Longhorn, myself, and I have to say, Austin has become a nightmare.  I even took my wife, down there, before we were married.  Not only is she a Sooner like yourself, her family ran in the Land Run.  And her cousin played under Barry.  She loved the place, when we went, but now it's too crowded for her.  Look just west of Austin, like Fredericksburg, Comfort, Bandera, Marble Falls, Llano, Wimberley, Killeen, New Braunfels and Gruene.  They are close enough to major metropolitan centers that you can head into town, if you want, but far enough out of the hubbub to take it easy, if you want.  And the food is to die for!  Tex-Mex, German, Barbecue, fresh fish.  Guy Clark even wrote a song about it.  Look up the lyrics to "Texas Cookin'".

Fredericksburg is a great town - good food, good beer, and the Museum of the Pacific War - dedicated to the memory of Admiral Nimitz and all those who served in the Pacific in WW2. We're talking serious manliness here.

Where did you Graduate from?

My favorite place to go to just kick back and relax is the Florida Keys.....  fly in rent a car rent a bungalow and just kick back.......
If you are looking for something relaxing, I'd say take a camping trip up in the mountains somewhere. It doesn't have to include too much hiking. Just find somewhere nice near a lake or river, pop down a tent, go fishing.
A single guy can vacation..."ANYWHERE HE WANTS TOO!"
So what was everyone's best (and worst) "single guy" vacations?

My best single guy vacation was not far from my worst either.  I was a born again bachelor with too much accrued leave in the Army so I checked out the USAF hop schedule and ended up in San Fransisco.  Ate a lot of Chinese food, stayed in "captains' quarters" on a Navy base (very nice), looked up an old friend from high school, spanked some dart sharps, and was bored to death in three days.  Ended up back in the woods near Anchorage hiking with my stupid great dane.
